Within the field of information systems development, enterprise records management (ERM) technologies have largely failed to meet industry‟s demands, especially for context-sensitive records management and document preservation. Electronic document and record management systems (EDRMS), as an enterprise records management tool, have become well-recognised applications for academic users in higher education institutes. The systems often show limited decision support options for academic users such as educators and students, resulting in a lack of coordination and duplication of academic efforts. For sustainable records management, it is beneficial to have a more context-specific and systematic EDRMS for an individual‟s effective decision-making. This study intends to make two distinct contributions in the following ways: Firstly, the study outlines a four-phased approach adapting the step-by-step process to conduct the empirical investigation through case study data collection and analysis in order to create a new ontology-based records management approach. Secondly, the study proposes a new architecture of the domain ontology-based ERM approach that satisfies user requirements and promotes the value of using it to meet organisational standards.
